Life and quotes of Wassily Kandinsky.

Yesterday I received incredible information connected in unbelievable mysterious ways with Wassily Kandinsky. I am going to publish it this week.

In the meantime I recommend all of my followers and guests to read about life of this artist HERE and in other articles on the internet and to read his quotes below.

Everything starts from a dot. ”

There is no must in art because art is free. ”

The artist must train not only his eye but also his soul. ”

The more frightening the world becomes … the more art becomes abstract. ”

Color is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key or another, to cause vibrations in the soul.”

Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential. ”

The true work of art is born from the ‘artist’: a mysterious, enigmatic, and mystical creation. It detaches itself from him, it acquires an autonomous life, becomes a personality, an independent subject, animated with a spiritual breath, the living subject of a real existence of being. ”

The artist is not a ‘Sunday child’ for whom everything immediately succeeds. He does not have the right to live without duty. The task that is assigned to him is painful, it is a heavy cross for him to bear. ”

To create a work of art is to create the world.”

There is nothing else I can do!

Very often my days start with surprises.

I can awake with new feelings or new ideas, I can switch on TV and see something that requires me to react to it in some way. I can start reading emails and immediately find not just one but several emails that answer questions that I have or at least show me where I can find answers..

Last two months I noticed that I like very much photos of full Moon on the dark sky. You can see that I posted several such photos during last two weeks.

In December I started my first attempts of painting using PC paint program. Very soon I noticed that I like to fill the field with black and then to put the yellow circle close to the right upper corner.

Yesterday I posted the photo by Derek Kind “Full Moon Rising Over Mount Shasta”. Today I found that somebody from the terrific four people blog “The World According To Dina” liked this photo.

Then I remembered that one young man recently joined “The World According To Dina” and he liked some my posts before.

As all my followers are outstanding people I decided to find more about this young man.

I went to Wikipedia and found the following:

Klausbernd Vollmar, (born 22 November 1946) is a German scientific psychologist, specialized in the language of symbols, in dreamart and advertisement.

Vollmar was born in Remscheid, Germany. He studied German literaturelinguisticsphilosophy and geography at the Ruhr-University/Germany and the McGill University/Montreal. After his degrees he was awarded a research scholarship by the Canada Council at the McGill University.

He worked as editor in chief of different papers and magazines, as director (theatre and films) and for the Goethe-Institut (the international German culture institution) in Finland.

In the 1970s he returned to university to study psychology. He was a student of the countess Dr. Olga von Ungern-Sternberg (a direct student of C.G. Jung). He undertook anthropological studies in Asia and the Arctic, about which he wrote in his novel “Wasserberg” and his “Arctic Diary”.

Later he ran bookshops in Cologne, worked in the publication department of the Findhorn community, Scotland and was a member of an English Gurdjieff group.

Since the end of the 1980s he has lived on the Norfolk coast, writing mostly non-fiction books for international publishing houses and working for radio and television.

His main subject is the language of symbols, dreams and the impact of colour on our lives. Besides that he is known as a specialist for the Arctic. He published several articles about the concept of the north and the picture of the Inuit in literature and film.

His books are translated in 15 languages. Apart from the books about creativity and personal development he wrote the German standard encyclopedia of symbols in dreams and the first German encyclopedia of colour in history, art and printing.”

Aha! Here is the man who can answer my questions!

Surely, I went to see the last post on “The World According To Dina”.

Below is what I found:

BLACK, WHITE, GRAY

I found this post very interesting. It answered my questions.  It explained that yellow colour is female colour and the circle is a female form. It also explained that black is intellectual colour. “Black is fashionable!…Black is sexy!…Black is a lucky colour!”

Today is the Valentine’s Day. Let this post be my gift to you!

There is nothing else I can do!
